Pierced Rock (Rocher-Perce), Gaspe

4.6
#2 of 16 in Things to do in Gaspe
Experience firsthand one of the world's largest natural arches in water at Pierced Rock (Rocher-Perce). Adventurous tourists like to head out during low tide to visit the rock up close (although doing so is at your own risk because of slippery ground). If you do not feel like traveling to the rock, you can view the attraction clearly from the shore and the pier. Or take a cruise on the water which circles the rock and often includes a tour guide offering some interesting facts about it.
